Lunch Club. What an amazing idea.
If you haven’t heard of a Lunch Club, the basic premise is that a group of like-minded workmates supply lunches for the group. Imagine having to think of and prepare lunch once a week, while also getting some wonderful variety and nutrition every day.
You may have noticed the meal preparation images that are abundant on social media – we’ve even posted some ourselves. This is where you set aside some time on one day to shop, chop, peel, prepare, cook and pack your meals for the week ahead. It’s a great idea and it works to support your dietary goals.
The only difference between individual meal prep and a Lunch Club is that it’s easier to get variety with the Lunch Club: instead of eating one meal five times, you eat five meals once!
Of course, the Lunch Club concept has plenty of potential problems, but getting your group together to negotiate rules and guidelines will go a long way to eliminating problems. See here for 6 primary tips you need to consider.
What if you don’t have enough (any?) like-minded workmates? Get a group together at Healthy Inspirations, your tennis club, a church group, or even at school drop-off or pick-up. You won’t eat together each day but can still benefit from each other’s culinary efforts.
We’d love to hear how your Lunch Club goes.
